Activity 3: What Gives Us Courage? (10 minutes), Workshop 1: David and Goliath

In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Ask: "What gave David courage? Why was he able to be brave, meeting Goliath with no armor and only a slingshot with five smooth stones?"

Lead a whole group discussion. Begin by pointing out that David was courageous because he believed he was on the side of right and that right (or God) would prevail. Then ask:

  • What makes you brave even when there is danger?
  • Where do you go for courage?
